I'm using the following form code to generate a 'print' page. I would like to have the new window pop-up then open the print dialog window. How would I do this?
<div style="margin-right: 50px; padding-top: 8.1em; text-align: right;">
	<form action="<?php echo $arch_config['portfolio_url'] . "print_html.php" ?>" method="GET" name="hidden_form">
		<input type="hidden" name="order" id="hidden_order" value='Alphabetical' />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[state]" id="hidden_state" value="" />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[county]" id="hidden_county" value="" />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[city]" id="hidden_city" value="" />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[denomination]" id="hidden_denomination" value="" />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[service]" id="hidden_service" value="" />
		<input type="hidden" name="filters[has_images]" id=hidden_has_images value="" />
		<input type="image" src="images/print_image.jpg" />
	</form>
</div>

That opens a new window once I took the alert out :-) but how about the print dialog opening?
